Bus Maintenance and Repair Council


The Bus Maintenance and Repair Council (BusMARC) was created in 2015 and is a new program of the American Bus Association. The mission of the BusMARC shall be to continually raise the level of maintenance awareness in the intercity bus and motorcoach industry. Currently, the leadership, structure and program activities of the Council are being developed to meet the needs of ABA’s bus operator members and address the need for continuing maintenance education and compliance training as well as provide a new venue for equipment, parts and service providers to interact with the bus industry.
